Images from a journey – pretty, and pretty silly

December 6, 2011

For those of you disappointed at the lack of photos in my last post, I offer this, a view from the basement door of my mom’s house in the Twin Cities hinterland. (Minneapolis-St.Paul, not Scottsbluff-Gering.)

Hey! What are all those spindly things blocking the view? Deciduous trees, you say?

In addition to photographing pretty things, I like to photograph absurd things. My trip to Minnesota provided me with some material. I will share.

How would you caption this one? “When pine trees attack”? “Minnesota redneck Christmas tree”?

And, a tidbit from rural South Dakota, on 73/61 between Martin, SD, and Merriman, NE:

Two words: Pet. Cemetery. *shiver*

    Born Again Taxidermy- hahahahahahahahahahahahahLOLOLOLOLOLOL. I wanted to comment on the beautiful sunrise (sunset) from your mom’s porch, but I’m wiping tears from my eyes after the last pic! *sniff* *wipe*

    BTW, don’t you mean the TRI Cities (TriTown?): Scottsbluff, Gering & Terry Town? 🙂 Or maybe “Scottsing Town”?

    Gotta share the last pic on FB, my cousin will love it!

      Glad you enjoyed the taxidermy sign. I’ve been trying the last couple of times I drove past there to get a pic, and I finally did. Yay!

      Yes, I suppose you’re right on the tri-cities thing, though I’ve only heard the area referred to as twin cities. (Same thing with Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, twin cities that constantly exclude Savoy, a 1950s add-on contiguous to the Chambana border.

    Wonderful sense of humor!

    That taxidermy sign is hilarious ! Or else the start of a great western horror film…

    Usually on driving trips I’m the one driving and I have yet to teach my cat how to use a camera. But driving home for Christmas I’ll have my brother with me if any photographic signs appear. Your sunrise photo is beautiful with the tree silhouettes in front of the light.
